and nevada. the home state of the senate democratic leader harry reid who it is significant today basically said the president's proposals were today in his words thoughtful but harry reid did not promise any dramatic action on all of this. a sign that democrats on the hill still may be skiddish in some of these swing states that it could back fire on them if they push too hard on gun control. >> getting reaction from the gun lobby. what are we hearing from. >> they the nra said they think this was an assault on firearms by the president. they got personal today. they put out an ad that basically talked about the president's own daughters and the security they have at their school and suggested in their words the president was an elitist hypocrite. take a listen. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? why see skeptical about putting armed security in their schools when they have armed guards at their school. jay carney immediately said this was completely out of bounds. he put out a statement most americans believe a president's childrens should not be used as pawns in the p
put squarely on the democratically controlled senate. what has harry reid's reaction to this been? he is a pro gun senator. >> reporter: there are probably at least a dozen democrats who have very high scores when the nra does it's review of voting. so there are a lot of democrats in the senate who are strong gun advocates and have constituents who believe in that. so harry reid is one of those people who has said an assault weapons ban will not pass the house so it is not likely the to be something the senate should even deal with should it become law. he made that statement on his local statement in his home state. that's a sign so he will have to be looking at what is really doable in terms of bringing legislation forward. so that gives me the sense at least right now that an assault weapons ban is something that at least democrats are really anxious to pursue. >> kelley or donnell. we want to bring in our political power panel for this hour. msnbc analyst karen funny, also a columnist for the kill and republican strategist hogan gibley. i want to start out with this op-ed that cam
at least that harry reid is not going to make his democrats who are up in 2014 walk the plank on a tough gun vote. so the house guys are saying look, we'll take it up when reid passes it knowing full well there's a small chance that larry reedye harry reid is going to pass a robust bill. if you saw some of the comments this past week from senators like max baucus, mary landrieu, mark begich who are up next year, you see why a lot of the house republicans are sort of smiling and saying we'll take it up when it comes over from the senate, wink, wink. >> gene, i guess it's going to be quite a while before i download profiles of courage volume 2 from the united states senate? >> i think it's going to be a while. look, it's been a month since newtown. and i think it's -- i think you make the case, it's unconscionable to do nothing, right, until the next newtown. i think there's a resonance out in the country. i think people get that this is something we really need to address and get it on an emotional level. but no, you're not going to be reading the updated profiles in courage out of the se
leader harry reid recently told a local pbs station in nevada. "let's be realistic," he said. "in the senate we're going to do what we think can get through the house, and i'm not going to go through a bunch of gyrations just to say that we've done something. if we're really legislators, the purpose of it is to pass legislation." senator reid did not show the same kind of hesitation with another moral issue, relief for superstorm sandy. the relief package was passed by the senate even though house speaker john boehner hadn't brought it up for a vote. in fact, the senate passage helped to put pressure on the house. sandy relief passed in the house with a minority of republican votes and almost every democrat. speaker boehner would not have brought the bill to the floor if it hadn't already been passed in the senate. there was similar pressure with the fiscal cliff deal. it passed in the senate first. then boehner was forced to bring it to the floor for a vote and the house, even though only a minority of republicans supported it. today senator majority leader harry reid seemed to c
are the guys who have to lead. they have got to get nancy pelosi and harry reid to bring along democrats, and we've -- >> harry reid is tough on this. he's pretty pro gun. >> well, he's going to have to listen to his constituents. i think he will. i think you're going to find in all of these places, when i talk to people around the country, there's just enough is enough. you see people who have been big gun rights advocates all of a sudden saying, well, we can't keep doing this. >> mr. mayor, thank you. >> you're welcome. thank you for having me. >> coming up, manti te'o's, a twitter war for the record books and for the ridiculist. ♪ you know my heart burns for you... ♪ i'm up next, but now i'm singing the heartburn blues. hold on, prilosec isn't for fast relief. cue up alka-seltzer. it stops heartburn fast. ♪ oh what a relief it is! >>> time now for the ridiculist. tonight, we're adding the twitter war between donald trump and deadspin. this week, deadspin broke the story about the notre dame linebacker who had a fake girlfriend, and trump was apparently imp pressed. he tweeted th
majority leader harry reid seemed to clarify his position somewhat. in a statement he said, "i am committed to ensuring the senate will consider legislation that addresses gun violence and other aspects of violence in our society early this year. all options should be on the table." well, that sounds a little bit better. but there should be no hedging on this issue whatsoever. especially from democrats. because if they side with the president of the united states think about what president obama has done for the progressive movement in this country in the democratic party. how can you not stand with him on this? how much more information do these lawmakers need? have we not covered it enough? other democratic senators with high ratings from the national rifle association have also refused to say if they support the president's package. max baucus of montana, senator heidi heitkamp of north dakota, senator johnson of south dakota. senator donnelley of indiana. senator begich of alaska, senator manchin of west virginia, senator tester of montana. however, senator mark warner spoke out in favo
own party. harry reid voted against the 1994 assault weapons ban that has since expired. he says he doesn't believe a new ban will pass congress. meanwhile, they're claiming it's a back-door way of creating a national gun rental city. >>> a just released survey of teachers in fairfax county finds a majority believe there should not be guns? school. they support an armed police officers in schools rather than other ops like armed security guard or school staff. 27% feels school facilities are safe and security, that online surveys of 433 teachers was conducted by the fairfax county federation of teachers. >>> meanwhile, at this hour, in rich more they are debating the very issue. a controversial vote is being on right now. julie caries says it's one of several gun bills to be considered by lawmakers. itches this is an ak-47. >> democratic lawmakers brought a powerful-looking prop to underscore their support for more than a dozen school safety and gun control measures, among them a bill that would bar gun owners from carrying a loaded weapon near school property. >> this is 30 rounds.
for harry reid. he wants to keep the majority and republicans feel that democrats could overreach. this could be a political win for them. but the president will push very heart, no doubt about it. jon: he says he will push very hard. he promised that yesterday. he will do everything in necessary power to get things done. one of the things in his power is pick up the phone and call harry reid i need this out of the senate. i need to you approve this. >> that's right. the president will have to make some calls to these conservative-leaning democrats who will be on the fence. that is not something he did in his first term. he will have to really push this. this could be a win-win for the white house they ask for everything, don't get everything and blame congress for only getting a few things through. of course the house is not going to move anything until the senate does. democrats also say, the ones that want these gun control provisions, they have to move very quickly. senator patrick leahy will hold hearings. the momentum is clearly now in the aftermath of the tragedy in connect
. >> why does it seem harry reid is suddenly back tracking on fist filibuster reform. >> he is a man of the senate. russ feingold remember the real progressive members will tell you harry reid is a liberal guy. he's good. it is not that he doesn't want to open the door for getting things done but he truly is imbedded in this senate culture. >> in this system, this progresses. right? >> folks driving the reform tend to be the younger members. it's just a reality. >> anybody can look at the senate and know that et cetera broken. >> they are in a week position. this is a week position for them. >> for republicans? >> they lost two seats in a cycle where they should have won five or six. >> bill: right. >> a million.4. gerrymanned gerrymannedering is the only reason they kept the house. their marginalization is clear. the only thing they can do is secretly behind closed doors stop things from happening. we complete the cycle of 2012. >> which is why again i don't understand why harry reid doesn't see this is the moment to act on filibuster reform. we will
. majority leader harry reid and speaker john boehner appear to be in a game of legislative chicken. boehner's spokesman released a statement after the president's speech saying, simply, house committees of jurisdiction will review these recommendations and if the senate passes a bill, we will also take a look at that. reid, of course, who has already said the senate will only consider legislation that can pass the house said in a very vague, carefully-worded statement yesterday, quote, i am committed to ensuring that the senate will consider can legislation that addresses gun violence and other aspects of violence in our society early this year. reid, of course, has home state politics to worry about, as well as keeping a number of red state democrats in line. many of them are up for re-election in 2014. potentially vulnerable. montana senator max baucus responded to the senate in a statement, quote, before passing new laws, we need a debate that respects responsible, law-abiding gun owners in montana instead of a one-size-fits-all directives from washington. joe manchin said, quote, i'm di
was yesterday. i'll point to, for example, harry reid. his response was described as tepid saying i'm committed to ensuring that the senate will consider legislation that addresses gun violence and others a pecks of violence in the society earlier this year and also said in an interview before the president had spoken that he didn't want to bring up legislation to vote that he didn't think would pass and that is a concern of, for example, i go back to e.j. and some others that the democrats as bill maher and others have said will not have a spine on this when the american people seem to be fortifying the spine for a fight, those that believe there needs to be some common sense legislation to come forward. >> i think there's pressure on the senators, a lot of them in red states to support some types, you know, of gun reforms, whether that's, you know, whether the legislation is piecemeal meaning it's a single piece of legislation on universal background checks or something more broad that talks about an assault weapons ban. but i think what i would say to a lot of these red state democrats and h
% of senate democrats are either have an a or b rating from the n.r.a., including harry reid. you have seven-- >> that's what they're trying to get at right now. the president obama right now for president obama he can't get the senate democrats to sign on to his legislation and groups that support president obama's gun control push are putting out ads like this on democrats. >> and shows you the president having a moment to unify the country after a horrific tragedy and you and i have talked about it in the past, in an effective way people are at the table saying comprehensive reform and let's discuss all things that will make our children and society safer and the president comes up with a plan not even members of his own party can support. i don't think that's the kinds of divisive leadership-- >> tony, you say members of his own party don't support this. the vast majority of members do. yes, are there democrats beholden to the gun lobby. >> megyn: let him finish. >> there are a ton of democrats, not a ton, but small set of democrats beholden to the influence of the gun lobby and that's w
don't need these weapons for hunting or self-defense. >> the democratic leader of the senate, harry reid, says it's doomed to try to pitch that. i think there he will about some resistance. maybe it won't work. a democrat saying it won't work, it's pretty dire for that particular measure, isn't it? >> it won't be easy. look, there are a lot of lobbyists against any change. we saw that in my own state in the aftermath of virginia check. i acted by executive order to enter mental illness records buy a database which made our state safer. i tried to get my ledge will toure more broadly close the gun show loophole, and they wouldn't do it, and so i know these battles can be tough, but my hope is that sadly, since virginia tech, we have had a role, we have had the shooting in the sikh temple in milwaukee, tucson, newtown. maybe we have learned something and more motive to make these reasonable fixes. >> the president also has 23 executive actions. when you read through the list of 23, include publish a letter from the atf to federally licensed gun dealers on how to run background checks,
-style assault weapons. but harry reid, a gun owner himself, does not think a ban will pass congress. so instead of putting together a bill with multiple layers, it's likely they will hold a vote on individual elements of the president's plan. >> the numbers around the country, most people favor having the ability to dairy -- carry guns. the american people want us to be very carb just what we do. >> reporter: president obama knows he needs to win over members of his own party before he can target his own party. >>> an unusual proposal to regulate assault weapons in san jose is getting mixed reviews. a lawyer in san jose drafted and ordinance and presented it at a city council committee meeting yesterday. it calls for anyone in san jose who wants to own an assault weapon to be required to pass a mental health check and then turn the weapon over to police for safe keeping. if owners want to check out their weapons, they would have to say why. >>> san jose mayor chuck reed said he's not hour it's a good idea for cities to make their own gun laws while the president is taking this on as a federal -
they control. also because of democratic potential opposition in the senate. of course harry reid, the majority leader, has long been a big supporter of the nra and they have returned the favor politically to him. that is one of the reasons he won re-election in difficulty fashion in 2010. now in 2014 other democratic senators in swing states who are up. jon: up for re-election. >> that's right. jon: if they cast a vote that is seen to be against the interests of firearms owners, hunters and the like, they could be in real trouble? >> guns and nra are both very popular in states like alaska and montana and arkansas and south dakota where there's a hunting culture, and, those senators like mark begich in alaska, will he actually vote for a gun ban? that i think is very problematic for the president. you're hearing some of these democrats, either noncommittal and saying i think this goes too far. jon: i was a little surprised when i heard about the executive actions the president was taking. it didn't seem to amount to, you know, large steps? >> no, i think that's right. they were pretty small th
which is controlled by the republicans. >> harry reid only expressed luke warm enthusiasm for pitching this to the senate, but something will happen there. paul steinhauser, thank you very much. >>> 43 minutes past the hour. so you screwed up at work and your boss decides to cut your salary in half. it's happening to one man. but you might not feel so bad for him when you find out who he is. that's coming up. >>> and folks, if you're leaving the house now, watch us any time on your desktop or mobile phone at cnn.com/tv. when you have diabetes... your doctor will say get smart about your weight. that's why there's glucerna hunger smart shakes. they have carb steady, with carbs that digest slowly to help minimize blood sugar spikes.

like majority leader harry reid. a lot of things in there are not that controversial. some of the stuff is going to be a hard row, tough sledding. he wants the assault weapons back. he wants under seven bullets in any gun. military-style weapons banned. that's just the beginning. >>gretchen: he also talks about health professionals. he reminds people that in obamacare doctors can ask questions about whether or not there are firearms in your home. there are mental health initiative as part of these 23 things. one thing that critics pointed out that's missing is there doesn't appear to be anything about hollywood's role in any of this with regard to violent video games. a lot of people are saying hollywood tends to be a friend of president obama, so could that be why that's missing in this. >>steve: you look at the town with the biggest gun problems now is chicago. a big magazine has nothing to do with handguns, the number-one killer in chicago. the assault weapons has nothing to do with handguns. not only that, senator marco rubio says it simply will not work because criminals always fig
: that's not the harry reid i know. >> alisyn: let's get to other stories in the headlines, late last noos night, two drones strikes, at least three of the bodies were burned beyond recognition. the death toll could rise in the hostage crisis at a gas plant in algeria. many were killed including one american. two americans are still missing and the crisis ended yesterday when the algerian army attacked the plant killing two militants. president obama said this is attack is another reminder of the threat posed by al-qaeda and other violent extremist groups in north africa. and the president says he'll work closely with algeria to make sure this does not happen again. brand new details in the prostitution scandal at the zumba dance studio. a 57-year-old married man accused of bank rolling the oranges a organization and speaks out denies knowing about the so-called brothel run by alexis wright, but admits to co-signing a loan. >> never became romantic. we did have intimate moments, but it's not what i would consider romantic. >> and i'm confused about the difference. >> want to explain.
with fellow democrats. >> they do. you look at harry reid from nevada, it's clear he's not going to take the lead on this in the senate. he will leave that to his chief lieutenant. today we had pat leahy come out and he said quote we will pass what we can get. that doesn't mean -- that sure doesn't sound to me like he believes the president's entire package is going to get through. there are also senators democrats up for re-election in gun states like montana louisiana, south dakota. so those are real issues for the president because, of course, they want to keep control of the senate and also there are western senators who are going to be looking for some middle ground. >> see, the key words, middle ground. >> if there is any. >> gloria, thank you. >>> one of the country's oldest airlines now has a brand new look. we're going to show you how american airlines is engaged in a major makeover. >>> plus, it's not just 20s anymore. the big change that you'll be seeing very soon at some atms.
